Written in conversation with snails, slime moulds and spookfish, the other body sees Flo Reynolds explore inter-species relationships and the ways in which the human body is inextricable from worlds beyond its perception. By turns playful and contemplative, the central sequence coalesces and disassembles into something like love poems, equally for creatures embodied in "tissue + rib + aura" and those whose forms are wondrously different.
